Roll Tides forever!” For many seniors, it was an emotional final game. “Being out there on the field I grew up playing on my whole life with my best friends one last time was one of the most memorable moments of my life. Being able to play alongside these amazing people and athletes these past four years has been a true blessing and I’m beyond grateful for all the memories we’ve made together,” said Jacob Decker (12).

The fans were treated to an exciting game, and the Tides got to show the home crowd what they were made of one final time this season. “My favorite moment was running on the field for the games with my teammates on my side.
